As reported in the Sep/Oct print issue of The Saturday Evening Post, more than 20 million Americans over 45, including half of those with type 2 diabetes, have peripheral neuropathy (PN).
PN occurs when poor circulation and damaged nerves disrupt the body’s communication network. Nerve fibers in the feet are often the first to go haywire, and the tingling and pricking pain can move up the body—from feet to legs, or hands to arms.
Prescription drugs Lyrica and Cymbalta are popular options to ease the pain.
Also, ask your doctor about Metanx, a less-known, prescription-strength combination of B vitamins that targets underlying nerve problems and is FDA-approved to treat PN in diabetics.
We’re excited about the potential of healing PN with B vitamins. Have you tried Metanx? Did it help? If so, tell us your story in the comments section below.
